Possible benefits of including more basil in your diet, may include:
Possibly helping to prevent cancer of the bladder and prostate
Aiding in digestion
Can be used to treat flatulence and an upset stomach
As an antibiotic, it may help to fight colds and the flu
Just a few more great reasons to add and extra dash of basil to your dishes. I am always very generous with the basil I use in recipes.
